Up the stairs to the first floor and you will find Cookie, a Thai restaurant/bar. There is a large selection of food/beers/wines/cocktails on the menu, almost too big which makes it hard to choose but I guess it means you just need to go back...More

This is a buzzing restaurant with an amazing bar and great Thai food. They have an amazing bar with lots of different beer and liquor. The only problem is finding the entrance! Look for #252 and go up the stairs.

Tuucked away on the first floor up a set of dark stairs, Cookie is a big and bussling place with a lively Melbourne vibe, and unique (and pretty funky) decor. I was part of a large group eating pre-theatre, so we went for a set...More

Came here for dessert. Place was packed and vibe just oozed cool. Fast service, desserts divine. Take a walk up the stairs - the food is worth it.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
